The Personalized Diet: The Pioneering Program to Lose Weight and Prevent Disease
An inspiration for Levels, but could be a lot shorter. The universal best diet doesn't exist because people respond differently to foods. The best way to find out how you respond is to measure it.

From my own experience wearing a continuous glucose monitor, this is far too noisy.
